16/04/15. The Governor reassembled

In addition to the work on the trolley, I was able to reassemble the governor, now that I had received the new springs. The worn pins in the governor weights have been refitted upside down, so that a clean domed head is uppermost. This will hopefully help with the overall running and idle speed of the engine.
